Featured Gunplay stories

A couple of years ago, I saw French Montana headline the FADER Fort during SXSW, and he brought a pair of deeply random guests with him: Macklemore and Diddy. This was a weird show and not a particularly good one. French had a live band with him, since live bands are a sort of luxury… More »

Not that long ago, major recording companies employed whole offices full of people whose whole purpose was to shape and mold rappers, to turn them into hitmakers. Maybe those people still exist. Maybe they’re up late at night, trying to figure out how to make Kid Ink happen. But the big labels, for the most… More »

Five or so years ago, most rap mixtapes consisted of rappers grabbing each other’s beats by the handful, competing to see who could do the most damage to “A Milli” or whatever. (But no, seriously, it was almost always “A Milli.”) But later — possibly during Gucci Mane’s dizzy 2008-2009 rise, or at whatever moment… More »

Stream Gunplay Living Legend

A couple of miracles today: Gunplay, the bloodthirsty Miami rapper who has been wrecking shit on mixtapes for years, is finally getting to release a major-label album. That’s the first miracle. The second miracle is that it fucking rules, presenting the furious mixtape Gunplay without diluting it for mainstream acceptance. This is a bone-hard, uncompromising… More »

Gunplay – “Blood On The Dope” (Feat. Yo Gotti & PJK)

Gunplay’s debut studio album, Living Legend (exaggerate much, Gunplay?), will be out 7/31, and today he’s shared a new song off the record. It’s called “Blood On The Dope” and features verses from Memphis heavyweight Yo Gotti and emerging Florida rapper PJK. The gist of the song is just what the title implies; bring back… More »

Gunplay – “Be Like Me” (Feat. Rick Ross)

Embattled Miami rapper Gunplay’s Living Legend is finally coming out at the end of this month, and we’ve already heard the YG-featuring lead single “Wuzhanindoe.” The second track we’re hearing from the project is a collaboration with Gunplay’s Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross called “Be Like Me.” From the ominous, fast-paced trap production to… More »

Gunplay – “Wuzhanindoe” (Feat. YG) Video

If all goes according to plan, we will soon live in a world where the ferocious Florida rapper Gunplay has a major-label album to his name. Gunplay’s anticipated-for-years debut Living Legend appears to have a firm release date later this week, and today we get the hard, cheap video for “Wuzhanindoe,” the YG/DJ Mustard colla… More »

Gunplay – “Wuzhanindoe” (Feat. YG)

Miami’s Gunplay is arguably the greatest shouter currently working in rap. But for reasons that go way beyond choosing the name “Gunplay,” it never looked like he was going to get much of a shot at a commercial career. So it’s cool to see that Def Jam has at least invested enough in him to… More »

Gunplay – “Scuffed Timbs” (Feat. Rick Ross) (Prod. Timbaland)

Gunplay’s debut studio album has been perpetually in limbo for a few years now, but it looks like it could finally be getting a release. After a few false starts and a handful of mixtapes, including this year’s self-titled, Living Legend is scheduled to come out early next year. “Scuffed Timbs” is a new track… More »

Well, here’s something awesome. Fuming Florida rap spitfire Gunplay has been making a habit out of rapping harder than anyone else in the universe for a few years now. And now, with no real warning, he’s dropped a massive self-titled 19-track mixtape. Gunplay has guest appearances from Rick Ross, Curren$y, N.O.R.E., Cormega, and Birdman. I… More »

Gunplay – “Kush” (Feat. Lil Wanye & Rick Ross)

Gunplay might finally be getting a shot! The out-of-control Miami rap firebrand has been kicking around the margins of Rick Ross’s Maybach Music empire for years, recording furious amazing bug-eyed verses and generally solidifying his rep as rap’s great scene-stealing wildman, but there’s been almost no talk of him getting his own album. But now,… More »

Gunplay – “Gallardo” (Feat. Rick Ross & Yo Gotti) Video (NSFW)

Gunplay is one of the greatest headknock rappers currently walking the face of the earth, and he’s also a part of one of rap’s most popular crews. And yet the closest he’ll come to a mainstream breakout moment might be this deeply NSFW strip-club video with Rick Ross and Memphis knucklehead Yo Gotti. Whatever, I’ll… More »

Download Gunplay Acquitted Mixtape

The steamroller-voiced Miami rap psychopath Gunplay recently came off of house arrest, and that means he’s free to crank out as much furious bug-eyed thud-rap as he could possibly want. But with Acquitted, his new mixtape, Gunplay’s limited himself to nine new songs, plus an intro, and the only remotely famous guest-rapper is Young Scooter. More »

Gunplay – “Bible On The Dash” Video

Gunplay, Maybach Music’s resident knuckle-throwing knucklehead, is both one of the most fearsomely unhinged rappers on the current rap landscape and straight-up one of the most gifted rappers out right now. One of the man’s crowning achievements is “Bible On The Dash,” a track from last year’s 601 & Snort mixtape that gives some emotive… More »

Gunplay – “Drop”

The splenetic Miami knucklehead Gunplay is the most consistently talented and entertaining piece of Rick Ross’s entire Maybach Music empire, but it’s tough to imagine him ever getting more famous than he is. He’s named Gunplay, he raps exclusively about committing socially reprehensible acts, and he’s currently under house arrest for pulling a gun o… More »

Rick Ross – “Hold Me Back Remix” (Feat. Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana & Lil Wayne)

I don’t know why this had to be an election-night thing, but Rick Ross decided to, I don’t know, celebrate I guess, by releasing a remix of his face-stomping anthem “Hold Me Back” that co-stars the all-star face-stomping team of Gunplay, Yo Gotti, French Montana, and Lil Wayne. It sounds like using your head to… More »
